Objectives the current study developed a new conceptual framework for induced demand which comprises of influential components and their interaction. Method The developed framework is based on the conceptual model developed by Labelle and to find the components that influence the induced demand and their interaction, a scoping review was conducted (from January, 1980 to January, 2017). As well an expert panel was formed to formulate and expand the framework. Results the developed framework comprises of two main groups of components. First, supply-side which includes of nine sub-components: physicians??incentive to pecuniary profit or meeting the target income, physicians??current income, physician/population ratio, service price (tariff), payment method, consultation time, type of recruitment of physicians, visible characteristics of physician and type and size of hospital, and second, demand-side with three sub-components: visible characteristics of patients, non-clinical characteristics of patient, insurance coverage. Conclusion A conceptual framework that can clearly describe interactions between influential components of induced demand is a critical step to provide a scientific base to understand physicians??behavior, particularly for health economics.
